Marine spatial planning

WP 4 (work package no. 4)

This WP focuses on marine spatial planning in the Baltic Sea. See a presentation describing WP4 - ko4_wp4.pdf (~440 kb) (The corresponding PowerPoint presentation can be obtained via the BALANCE Secretariat ( ) or from the authors).
The responsible partner is the Finnish Natural heritage Service (Metsähallitus).

Strategic focus

  • Development of a broad area management template with zoning of large marine areas.
Planned results
  • A management template with guidelines on a) planning and managing of marine areas, b) assessment of management efficiency, and c) stakeholder involvement and participation in spatial planning of marine areas.
  • A final report of an ecosystem-based approach to management of marine areas in the Baltic Sea based on spatial planning - this will include guidelines on zoning plans, management planning, success assessment and stakeholder involvement.
